Cardinal Sins of the Internet

Just note

never …never ever ever ever ever….ever give away a major plot point in a forum/facebook/myspace bulletin post of anything like that. never ever…ever. never

I am reading Eclipse from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer—the third out of four books in the series.

someone, whom will remain completely nameless just gave a HUUUUGE plot point away in her status and i read it before i could stop myself.

i dont even know what else to say.

I’m just dumbfounded.

By the way, I know it sounds dumb, 22 year old man, hardened atheist reading a teenage vampire love story—but ITS REALLY FREAKING GOOD.

  • I don’t reckon you’re so hardened (yet). That’s what I like about you.

  • I enjoyed the Twilight movie so I’ve started reading the books, I’m probably a third of the way through the first book and so far I don’t know if I’ll finish because something about her writing style is driving me crazy. Maybe she’s a little too good at writing the way a teenage girl thinks.

    Lots of atheists read fantasy and sci-fi, so you are in good company.

  • You don’t have to convince me. I’m halfway through New Moon right now. 🙂

  • Isn’t someone supposed to announce they are going to do a spoiler when they do that? Silly people…

    Read what you want, it’s your right.

    I read your blog the other day…you’re entertaining. Looking forward to getting to know you better 😀

  • Lol! Sounds like my bf. He doesn’t even read books & yet I find him sneaking off with my Twilight books and reading them ’til 4am! He’s on Team Jacob btw coz he thinks werewolves are way cooler than the vampires.

    I got hooked onto the books after watching the movie (not ashamed to admit I went another 6 times. Lol!).

    It’s just my luck that Eclipse is sold out everywhere in my city. That’s the only one I haven’t read 🙁

    Those books have crack on the pages! I’ve read them all.

  • I would say oops? But really, it comes down to: ARGH!

    I suppose that spoilers are just one of those weird ways that popular cultural media enforces itself onto the public mindset.

  • I have a friend who unknowingly and unintentionally gives away spoilers, I scolded her once for that. LOL.

    The Twilight Saga is great except for 1 book that I found irritating.

  • If there’s anyone out there who is reading the Bible: Don’t worry! I won’t tell you that Jesus dies. Oh, oops..
